Clynelish 12 Year Old Ainslie and Heilbron circa 1950s/60s - Spring Cap

An incredibly rare bottling of Clynelish by Ainslie & Heilbron distillers. This is one of the few single malts ever bottled with a spring-cap closure, and was likely released at some point in the late 1950s or early 1960s.

Aged 12 years, this was produced at the old Clynelish distillery, referred to as Brora since 1975. This distillery closed in 1983 after the new Clynelish which was built next-door in 1968, eventually assumed sole distilling responsibility.
